Oklahoma sophomore WR Marquise Brown caught six passes for 126 yards in a 42-35 victory over Kansas State on Saturday.

Brown hadn't caught more than four passes since September 16 against Tulane, but he was excellent against the Wildcats on Saturday. He didn't find the end zone, but Baker Mayfield did connect wit hhim on a 66 yarder to set up a Rodney Anderson touchdown. Brown could have another big game on Saturday against Kansas, even with so many mouths to feed in the Oklahoma offense.

Oklahoma redshirt sophomore RB Rodney Anderson ran for 147 yards and a score, and caught four passes for 30 yards and a touchdown in a 42-35 victory over Kansas State on Saturday.

Anderson (6'2/223) had a big role in the Oklahoma offense with running back Abdul Adams out and Trey Sirmon held to four carries, and he was more than up to the task. His two scores came late in the fourth in big situations; a five-yard touchdown catch from Baker Mayfield to tie the game at 35-35, and the game-winning score with just seven seconds left from 22 yards out. Anderson could see more touches next week against Texas Tech, especially if Adams is unable to go.

Oklahoma senior QB Baker Mayfield completed 32-of-41 passes for 410 yards with a two touchdowns and interception, and ran for 69 yards and two scores in a thrilling 42-35 victory over Kansas State on Saturday.

This was a doozy of a football game. Mayfield and the Oklahoma offense struggled in the first-half, but were up to the task in the second against the Wildcats. He impressed with his legs, scoring from 16 and three yards out, respectfully. Even in a struggle in the first half, the 6-foot, 220-pound signal-caller showed his accuracy and ability to improvise. Expect another shootout for the Sooners and Mayfield next week against Texas Tech.

Oklahoma redshirt senior WR Jeff Badet (undisclosed) was dressed and warming up in advance of Saturday's game against Kansas State.

Badet was injured in last weekend's win over Texas. All signs at this juncture point to the Kentucky transfer being able to play against the Wildcats.
Oct 21 - 3:28 PM

Oklahoma sophomore RB Abdul Adams (ankle) is warming up in advance of Saturday's game against Kansas State.

Adams was sidelined for the Red River Rivalry last weekend due to the ankle injury. He has his right ankle taped in warmups on Saturday and looks to be ready to play against the Wildcats. If he is unable to give it a go, we'll pass along word.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline reports that "the belief from those coming out of Norman" is that Oklahoma redshirt junior TE Mark Andrews will declare for the draft after this season.

No surprise there, as Andrews is considered by many to be the top tight end in the upcoming draft class. The 6-foot-5, 245-pounder is a dangerous aerial weapon, and a model of consistency: He's put up 50 or more yards receiving in all but one of Oklahoma's six games.

Former Washington Redskins GM Scot McCloughan compared Oklahoma senior QB Baker Mayfield to a "shorter version of Brett Favre."

"He reminds me of a shorter version of Brett Favre," McCloughan said. "Tough guy. He can throw it. And he’s very confident, and he’s not afraid whatsoever, whatsoever. He’s a battler. I know saying Brett Favre’s a big name, and I was around him for a while, but this guy’s got talent." Mayfield entered this season as something of a Day 3 afterthought -- drawing comparisons to Colt McCoy, for instance -- but he's winning over more NFL followers by the day. ESPN's Todd McShay and Mel Kiper recently agreed that he's a Day 2 prospect at this point.

An anonymous NFL scout speaking to Bleacher Report said he prefers Oklahoma senior QB Baker Mayfield to Wyoming QB Josh Allen.

"Don't underestimate the kid," the scout said. Bleacher Report's Matt Miller believes Mayfield can be a "franchise quarterback" because of his accuracy, decision-making and toughness. "His underneath accuracy hasn't shown up as a strength, but his mobility and toughness would work with Kyle Shanahan in San Francisco or John Morton and the New York Jets," Miller wrote. "He's athletic enough to run the scheme Tyrod Taylor runs in Buffalo. His downfield passing ability would even be a fit for Sean Payton in New Orleans." Mayfield has drawn comparisons to players running the gamut between Russell Wilson and Colt McCoy.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline reports that he's hearing Oklahoma junior T Orlando Brown will declare for the draft after this season.

The analyst added that those he's spoken with do not perceive Brown as a top-25 selection, "an opinion I share at this point," he wrote. Brown is already looking like one if this class' most divisive OL prospects. Walter Football's Charlie Campbell believes Brown (6'8/345) could win up at RT. Campbell reported that he's heard second-round grades on Brown as well as comparisons to former Alabama tackle D.J. Fluker. Meanwhile, ESPN's Mel Kiper has stated that Brown "could be a top-five pick." Stay tuned.

Walter Football's Charlie Campbell believes that Oklahoma junior T Orlando Brown's stock is rising from his solid play in 2017.

Campbell believes that Brown (6'8/345) could ultimately end up at right tackle, and some scouts have compared the monstrous lineman to former Alabama tackle D.J. Fluker. "They think that he can be overwhelming and talked about how against Ohio State, he was very impressive with how ferocious he played," Campbell said. He also notes that some still have Brown as a second-round pick, but at this point it'd be a huge upset if he wasn't one of -- if not the -- first lineman taken in the 2018 draft, assuming he enters.

Oklahoma sophomore RB Abdul Adams (ankle) is questionable for Saturday's game against Kansas State.

Adams was forced to sit last week against Texas, and there's a good chance that the talented sophomore won't be able to go against the Wildcats. If he can't go, it'll mean more carries for Rodney Anderson, and Trey Sirmon will again be the focal point of the Sooners' running game.
Oct 19 - 8:05 PM

One NFL executive believes Oklahoma senior QB Baker Mayfield will be a starting NFL player, an opinion he did not previously hold.

The executive told NFL Media's Daniel Jeremiah that initially Mayfield was considered a weak armed, run around quarterback. Now, however, "he's got plenty of arm strength and he definitely has the 'it' factor. He put on a show when I watched him at practice." Mayfield has drawn all types of comparisons, from Russell Wilson to Colt McCoy. Obviously, both have started in the NFL but to varying degrees of success. Mayfield's ability to avoid sacks and find receivers downfield is practically rare.

Oklahoma freshman RB Trey Sermon rushed for 96 yards on 20 carries in Saturday's 29-24 win over Texas.

With Abdual Adams missing Saturday's contest due to injury, Sermon handled the bulk of the rushing load for the Sooners. The 6-foot-1, 214-pounder has shown out well as a true freshman this season, having now rushed for 469 yards and three touchdowns in six games.
Oct 14 - 8:01 PM

Oklahoma redshirt junior TE Mark Andrews caught four passes for 104 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 29-24 win over Texas.

Andrews hauled in a backbreaking go-ahead 59-yard touchdown pass in the fourth quarter. While the Sooners have a number of intriguing young receivers on the roster, the 6-foot-5, 245-pound redshirt junior might be the team's most consistent offensive piece. He has put in at least 50 yards receiving in all but one of Oklahoma's six games.
Oct 14 - 7:54 PM

Oklahoma senior QB Baker Mayfield completed 17-of-27 passes for 302 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in Saturday's 29-24 win over Texas.

This wasn't Mayfield's sharpest game in terms of pure statistical output, but he came up clutch after Texas pulled ahead 24-23 midway through the fourth quarter. On Oklahoma's ensuing drive, the senior gunslinger unloaded for a 59-yard touchdown pass to Mark Andrews on a perfectly thrown deep ball down the right sideline to put the Sooners back on top for good. The Heisman contender has thrown for 1,937 yards with a 17/1 TD/INT ratio in six games this season.
